Apply to the Educator Preparation Program before Field Experience. All students enrolled in education courses with a field experience component in the public schools are required to APPLY to the Educator Preparation Program at the beginning of the semester before beginning their first field experience. Currently, applications are on-line and payment of the $75.00 administrative fee (fee increase effective Fall 2011 - $100.00) to be submitted on-line at SamWeb. Failure to apply to the Educator Preparation Program may result in students not receiving credit for the course because they will not be allowed to complete their field experience. Compliance with this policy assures our partnership schools that criminal history background checks are initiated for all students participating in field experience in the public schools.
